This is one of the best apps for any OS ever, the man keeps surprising me. I was just wondering why he can't add swiping upwards like there are swipes downwards on the notification bar buttons - and he just did it. And now there's the music control too! My phone is in a case so it's harder to get the volume buttons, I was using SlideMeLoud before, now I just swipe up from the Options button and there it is. And if you tap on the icon it also opens the music player. Simple and genius. Still haven't decided about the left button, right now I use it to turn auto-rotation on and off. And I need to think of something for "swipe while covering proximity sensor" too. :-)
Anonymous, 09 Nov 2013And now I just found out that Google wants us to have Google+ accounts to be able to comment o... moreYep, there was something a few months ago when Google was down for 5 (FIVE) minutes. The world's internet traffic went down by 40%. Imagine that (and you can Google it and read more). They can do whatever they want now, in the new version of Google Maps you have to look at an advertisement after you do a search. So I imagine Android in 2015: you make a call, and when you finish a voice says "We are sorry your mother is ill, but we recommend buying some fresh fruit from LIDL for her. If you don't want to order fruit please solve this CAPTCHA in 5 seconds." :-)))
I'm using my operator's email and Gmail just for large files, but still my friends use Gmail for regular talk so you can't escape from it. Then, if you encrypt your email they just keep it until they have the technology to decrypt it. I don't know... A friend was showing me his iPhone 4S with iOS 7 and there's not much Google in it, it's getting better (except iTunes but he has a Mac) but the navigation isn't offline like on Nokia, and you have to tap and tap and tap just to turn something on or off because it doesn't support widgets. N8 doesn't have too many widgets available but still it beats iOS in that. And when you type a message no matter if you type small or big letters they are always CAPS on the keyboard. I guess lower case would cause a lag? Haha.
Now there's the news that, if Elop becomes the new CEO of Microsoft, he might sell Xbox and kill Bing. Fun times ahead.

Ah, the nerve. To think that this is the company who pleaded to the public about fighting for the "open" internet. Lol. Might as well look for alternative to gmail before it gets google plus'd as well. Haha. Open internet. Google's internet. Haha.
[deleted post]Mr. Multiple Personality disorder, it seems that you forgot to turn on autocorrect on your phone powered by a "modern" OS with NSA codes. And you have the gall to mock the N8's pathentic keyword or should I say pathetic keyboard?

Hey guys, belle extra buttons just updated and it's just superb. Give a try to the new swipe capabilities. GREAT:). http://store.ovi.com/content/258316.
Please support the developer. The only active developer still fighting for symbian
Great phone, I have to get used to it over and over again when I use my N8 next to my Lumia 1020, because the screen is so much smaller. But I do miss the times when 3,5 inch was big... the phone fits in my pocket EASILY.
Class, style and awesome built quality. That is how I would describe the N8. Simply great.

[deleted post]Thanks, I "liked" them right away. There could be a problem in signing the apps, my phone is hacked so it's no big deal, but I hope the others will find their way around it too.
Just spending some quality time tonight, watching Thor - The Dark World on my phone. Also I tried snapping some photos with CameraPro in 100% quality. Wow. I get 9MB large images. I'll have to compare the results with normal 90% ones but I'm impressed that the large files were saved just as fast as the normal ones.
Well, trolls come and go. He'll get tired soon. Hah, I was called a Samsung fanboy by Apple fans on the blog because I was pointing out what Symbian had before iPhone did. Makes perfect sense. :-)
I am also a fan of N8. Browser / browsing interface is worst when browsing normal sites.

2. Live wallpapers are for kids. And a battery drain. And boring. Put something personal instead, not something others make for you.
3. Luncher? That's a place where you have lunch?
4. Voice assistance = spyware. And a data drain. NSA thanks you.
5. You still don't have spell check.

I played with the first Galaxy today (with Cyanogenmod inside) and after 10 minutes I wanted to hug my N8. Opera Mini works much better on Symbian, the keyboard is awful (you need a course just to be able to highlight some text, no arrows, bad layout, hard to edit anything), the menus are awkward, I need much more typing to do the same thing as on the N8. Whatever I do it wants to sign in with Google, if I turn the flashlight or compass on I get advertisements, etc, etc. I would need to test 15 similar apps to find one that works properly. I won't even talk about the camera. I tried some cheap Android tablet too, the camera wouldn't even start and it was as laggy as if you run Symbian on 100 MHz.
Anyway, some people report there's a fake "improved software" update, due to an error on the Nokia servers. If anyone reading this gets the notification, don't download it, it won't install.
